As a client seeking a therapist is a daunting and stressful experience. However, I can relate to this in more ways than one. The most important factor that a client needs to have is the desire to change, even if in some cases they are not certain about what actually needs to change. I believe that once this understanding has been achieved we can work together on stress, anxiety, depression, low mood, self-confidence or lack of self compassion.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exacerbate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalisation, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in LS8 can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in LS8 or for a LS8 coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include LS8 coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counselling.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in LS8 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in LS8 who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in LS8 who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.
